While the opening series did not go as planned for the Philadelphia Phillies there season is far from over. What can we take away from these games?
Well, that did not go well. What is one of the most anticipated seasons in recent years for the Philadelphia Phillies did not start off too well. It started perfectly before horrific managing led to eight unanswered runs by the Atlanta Braves to win game one 8-5. A big game by Carlos Santana and a clutch challenge resulted in a 5-4 extra-inning victory. Then, the Braves proceeded to trample the Phillies, outscoring their season total in one game by a score of 15-2.
While the series did go poorly and there are plenty of bad takeaways, there are some good ones too as we move forward into the 2018 season. Here are five takeaways from series one of the 2018 season.
